In the warmer weather the herbaceous perennials like Lupins, Penstemons and Phlox burst to life in a rainbow of colours.

September Plant of The Month
‘Bee’ good to your garden
Japanese Anemones are some of the easiest and reliable perennials available. Their white or pink flowers are perfect for attracting bees to your garden and are ideally suited to a dappled shade environment where they can flower for several weeks. Once established they can create an impressive display so be careful not to plant too many in one space.

October Plant of The Month
Be ‘Berry’ good to your garden
As we enter the months where the pollinators look to get their heads down, it is also the time when we need to shift are attention to our feathered friends. Berries are nature’s way of propagating plants but also supporting wildlife.
Sorbus, ‘Mountain Ash’ is a great tree for small to medium gardens which will produce huge amounts of berries and you will often see the Blackbirds and Fieldfare scoffing them down.
Pyracantha, ‘FireThorn’ also produces plenty of berries and has the added bonus of thorns for the smaller Blue Tits and Sparrows to seek protection within.
Skimmia are best suited to deep shade so not only resolve shady border issues but can provide vital berries for the birds in the colder months.
Cotoneaster are available as ground covering shrubs, wall shrubs and even trees. Their mainly red berries provide vital energy for several species of bird.
As well as the varieties listed above there are many other plants that produce a wide selection of berries in different colours. Callicarpa, Hypericum and Symphoricarpus are to name a few that produce purple, yellow, cream red and orange berries.
£19 each or 2 for £30
It’s not just the birds who should benefit from the berries. Now is a great time to plant yourself a blueberry for a bumper crop next year. You will need at least 2 plants for pollination purposes and they do like an acidic soil so make sure you plant with ericaceous soil. They are also happy in pots as they do not get too big and have the added bonus of superb autumn colour.
